    I know hes way legal. In fact he was in an any bull area. I am just curious what others think compared to what my estimate is.

    Size always matters! :-) Plus its fun to speculate. 65". For sure a no brainer anywhere. However, I sure wouldn't be "speculating" if I was standing there with a gun tho.

    This probably wasn't open season, he's in full velvet and the foilage looks to be early -maybe mid summer. If it was season he might have been open to archery in certain areas.....he'd be a good archery bull for sure.

    I did let him walk. This was in the middle of july with this area opening on August 20. I was just pike fishing with my daughters when he came strolling out of the trees. We watched him for about two hours.

    He is as wide as he is tall at the shoulders so definitely in the 70"s

    Having been able to watch him for a long time in person, I figured he was about 70. Using my computer software to judge him I came up with about 72. I was using 8 inches between the antler nubs to come up with that.

    65-70".. Beautiful bull and since it's 3 on the brow it's on the ground. I'll measure later

    Big bulls are usually around 7' high at the shoulders, aren't they? And he's surely not 84" . . . . .
